Widely known as a “James Bond Watch,” Omega Seamaster was the watch of choice for 007, James Bond. As a dive watch, this watch features unidirectional rotating bezel to keep time under water. However, as a watch of James Bond, every thing has been kicked up a notch. Unlike ordinary dive watches that follow 300m/30bar of water resistance, Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean takes it to 600m/60bar. Also, the rubber strap is well suited for the toughest situation under water with extra stainless steel bracelet in the box. Lastly, it features helium escape valve to let out the helium gases that gets into the watch. Even though dive watches are water and dust tight, in the deep sea, difference between the pressure, underwater and the surface, allows the small helium gas particles to get inside. Moreover, unlike conventionally dive watches of this caliber, this Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean has a clear see-through back with the Pyeongchang 2018 Limited Edition logo printed on to it. Dive watches often choose solid back to improve their water resistance under pressure, but its clear back with twice the usual water resistance shows the great engineering prowess of Omega. Also, its in-house OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 movement can resist up to stagger 15,000 gauss of magnetic field. As a official time keeper of Pyeongchang Winter Olympic 2018, Omega released 2018 of this watch to symbolize the year 2018. With its unique color schemes and limited edition number engraved in the back, it makes this a very one of a kind watch to own.
